When things are roughest
When that voice inside of you is saying...
"Just Give Up"
Don't l isten
Don't quit
Never settle for mediocrity

Don't give up
Just because your critics don't think you're qualified
Because if you are healthy, you are qualified
Even if you aren't, you must persist
Because you are a champion

You were made an over comer
Nothing can stop you
Program it into your mind
That you are the best, not arrogant

Help others
Love everyone
These are the qualities of a winner

Be strong
Be the champion god made you

Bull Riding is a very tough sport that plays a toll on your body and even bigger on your mind. You cannot be defeated. Don't give up!

This is something I thought of when I was running the other day. My team has been going though a hard year so far, and this supported them all. I though this might be good for someone else too.

" Throughout my life, my friends and folks have offered me advice. And though they meant the best for me, it often wasn't nice. They would always say my plans were just more crazy schemes. And every time I listened, I let them steal my dreams. I guess they feared, in case I failed, that I really shouldn't try. So I never spread my wings and never learned to fly. But they're just folks who only see the world the way it seems, and I am no longer going to let those people steal my dreams."

I know that there are many people out there that want to do so much more. Deep down, they know that they are capable of accomplishing their dreams but sadly it is the mediocre minds that bring them right back down. I just want to let people know to go after them! Don't let the dream stealers bring you down.

" Life has a tendency to push you down against the ground. You decide whether you will lie on your back, rest on your knees, or crouch and wait for the moment to leap up and reach heights higher than when you stood on your feet."

I selected this quote because it reminds me that even in time of despair and hopelessness, we still need to be ready to overcome and fight our obstacles. We can choose to dwell in our own pity or learn and grow from our suffering.

" She was the girl that thrived on adversity. Overcoming life's setbacks & disappointments was nothing new to her. Sure, they broke her at first, sometimes for months on end, but eventually the puzzle pieces forged together and her broken heart was made stronger. Her heart was made indestructible. Made "Ford tough" and like the energizer bunny that kept going on and going, so was her heart. Nothing could break her. Not the circumstances, not the battle scars that inflicted her. Nothing. :)"
